Yes. This has already been answered by Mark P, above, but more detail.RAH,
Just for clarification, are you saying that several films were shot 2.55, but were released 2.35 to theaters?
Prepping this with DL, was told it was shot with Arri and scope adapter optics, to be projected 2.55 with mag tracks.
Final mix was produced mono, as even mx stems are in that format. While I’ve heard rumors of mono mag, I never physically saw one, and if any were produced they would probably have been via direct positive, as all (both) sets of printing matrices were 2.35. Tech cropped track area as opposed to centering, sending film off balance - quite obvious in some shots. I went over this with Mr. Crisp, who corrected the AR for Blu and beyond.
